Joanne’s professionalism, work ethic, people skills and performance are amazing! Joanne has proven time and time again that she gets the job done. She is a powerful communicator who knows how to direct any situation with care, thought, and ability. In addition, Joanne immediately connects with the person she is assisting which puts you at ease and you know you are in great hands! I highly recommend her and the services she provides.


My relationship with Joanne Parnofiello began in 1996 on a professional level.

As the Human Resource Director she was responsible for hiring me as the Executive Director of Holy Name Hospital Home Care & Hospice. At that time Joanne conducted an in depth interview and took the time to enlighten me about the philosophy of the hospital and goals for these departments. She was instrumental in coordinating meetings with mid-level and senior management to further evaluate my credentials and provide me with insight into the hospital’s administrative structure. Upon hiring, Joanne arranged my structured orientation and followed up on a regular basis with my progress as a new administrator in this organization.

Joanne displayed a genuine interest in finding the right fit for the position, supporting the new hire, and mentoring me through the process.

I was extremely impressed by her commitment and dedication as well as her ability to provide valuable and constructive assistance.

Throughout my years there we worked very closely to evaluate, interview and hire new nurses and ancillary staff for my departments. Joanne excels in her ability to screen and vet applicants all while maintaining a caring and compassionate professional demeanor and patience with all those she encounters. She is extremely bright, energetic and organized. These attributes of her personality are consistently reflected in her day to day work. Through my subsequent professional career, Joanne has been a guiding influence in seeking other professional positions as well as a personal coach and friend. She is always well respected by her peers for her mastery and comprehensive knowledge.

It is my pleasure to offer this testimonial for Joanne.

I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Joanne Parnofiello during my employment at Hospital for Special Surgery. Joanne was not only my boss, but someone I consider to be my mentor.

Joanne and I were at colleagues at HSS for 10 years. Joanne is a consummate HR professional. She is smart, thoughtful, an excellent communicator and a joy to work with.

Joanne’s ability to blend professionalism and compassion are unparalleled. When I was being interviewed by her for an entry level management position at a major academic medical center, she ended the interview by getting up and walking me to the next person’s office, which was across the street. I have never been treated with such respect and made to feel so special in an interview process and it was one of the main reasons that I took the position. In the years the followed, I continued to be promoted, ultimately obtaining a senior management position where Joanne was responsible for the recruitment of hundreds of individuals in my departments. While she only allow the highest caliber of candidate to be sent through, with laser precision, I watched her treat every candidate the same way she treated me. Joanne is a wonderful person and an asset to any person seeking HR related services.
